DIY Slasher Tank – Candy Coated Culinista

I’m watching a lot of Halloween movies on AMC this month and I’m not even a horror fan. I love Halloween, but not so much these movies. When I was a kid I was always afraid, but now watching these movies in 2014 all they do is making me laugh out loud. My inspiration for this tank was definitely Freddy Krueger.

Difficulty level is: Easy & Fun

Materials
• 1 tank top
• 1 pair of sharp fabric scissors

Assembly
1. Lay your tank top out flat with the back facing up and sketch out two lines that meet in the middle of the tank using a pen, pencil or chalk. (You can make any shape you want)
2. Make lines 2 cm apart vertically.
3. Cut along the lines using a fabric scissors.

Please Enjoy

My thoughts
Another great tank that cost me $2 on the clearance rack and now there is a little bit of personality. I can’t wait to wear this to the gym.

I love to get crafty and with all the clearance sales going on, I took the opportunity to purchase some cheap tanks, tees, skirts & denim. This way I can get creative and not care how much I spent because it was a steal.

Difficulty level is: Easy & Fun

Materials
• 1 tank top
• 1 pair of sharp fabric scissors

Assembly
1. Lay your tank top out flat and sketch out you skull face with a pencil or pen.
2. Cut out the design as neat as possible.

Tips
• Make sure you use fabric scissors from a fabric store. I tried using my household scissors and the edges weren’t as neat and tidy.

Please Enjoy

Reviews
I had so much fun just taking to a piece of fabric and cutting away. Mr. C. said it was “very cool and creative.” He also said I looked like a pumpkin as I was wearing my coral shorts to the gym that day. This is what gave me the idea to make it a Halloween post, one wry comment from the hubby. The girls at the gym said “is that another one of your creations” and liked it.

My thoughts
Besides not wearing orange on the bottom when I wear this top, I had a blast making this. It took no time at all and as I love skulls and collect all things skulls, I knew exactly how I wanted this face to look. The tank top only cost me $3.00 and this is a great way to see where my creativity goes.
